Yet Another Online Server Browser

Post by epsy »

http://browser.hashpickup.net/ - Thanks to CT for letting it use their server list as source.

Alright, so I pretty much added anything I could think of putting into a server browser. So, you lucky bastards get these nifty features:
  • Updates without refreshing
  • Quick search bar on both server and player names
  • Lists online clans
  • Server bookmarks!
  • Keyboard navigation, F1 to see all shortcuts
  • Join links
  • Shows one server per line, convenient for skimming the list
  • Sort by user count or server name
  • Show/hide empty/populated/full servers
  • Apply your own regular expressions on server names and/or player names
  • Filters and Bookmarks get saved in browsers which support Local Storage
  • Share your custom filters using a link
Source is at https://code.launchpad.net/~epsy/+junk/arma-serverlist.js

When I clicked on the link and was directed to that site, my whole computer crashed/froze, and I had to turn it off.

Great work on the browser btw!

A question/idea.
Would it be possible to have the players who are in the server colored red for dead and green for alive? It would be cool if that was possible so when tourney servers are full, you can watch the server browser to see who is alive and dead!

It may or may not be possible, but at the minimal the server could not be full in order for it to actually work as there would have to be php code to connect to the server and obtain that data (there is code to find scores/teams like that) Not sure if it can obtain the alive/dead info. But the feed that he is getting does not have any of that, nor do any feeds as like i said, it fails quite often at getting the information.

And it currently only updates every 1 minute. So not very useful with that in consideration.

Hmmm, would it be possible to put a slot in a server that shows the game stats (alive/dead/score) in real time? More like a stream but not rly?

Not without having a "fake" player staying in a server for as long as someone is watching it.

I'm actually quite sure you can get whether a player is alive or dead. http://www.eclipse-d.net . If anyone is in the EC|d server it displays whether they are alive or dead.

We would need a bot in every server. I'm considering it in another format for tournaments, but for a server list, not without it being available on ping.

Well, as it's their server, I think they can do it using scripts. If every server hoster has such a script (or epsy a bot), certainly possible. Only that many won't want to run scripts.

actually the way the do it is just read the players.txt file that is outputted from their server. (At least the way i think it works I have not seen it while anyone is playing there)
